May Flowers


Bouquet of Roses from Friday night's dinner party.

Pitcher of Lilacs from my backyard bush.

Urn full of Foxgloves in my entry.

Pot of Sunflowers and Daisies on my window ledge.

Good Morning Delores,
So many pretty flowers to bring cheer to the day. Like you, I don't think I can be happy without having some all around the house. How I envy those lilacs! They have stopped blooming here already. And the sunflowers in thata gorgeous pot are wonderful, so cheery and bright.
Thanks for this - I needed to see something pretty and calming this morning!!

Delores, all those flowers are gorgeous! I really like the pot of sunflowers!

Beautiful. One of the many things I love about flowers is that (mostly) the more you cut them the more flowers you get.. I adore bringing them inside but I could learn a thing or two from you about arranging them. Mine always look like I plopped them in a container - which I did of course. Great post. Thanks for sharing it.
